Make sure you know where you are buying from.

I'd rather spend an extra $50+ at B&H and know that I'm not receiving something dodgy.

B&H happen to have also dropped prices nicely on the 5D2 and 5D2 kit.

I tried the Henry's $1,999 deal a few weeks back on the 5D when it was in stock.  After 3 failed attempts I called Chase (my credit card provider) to ask them what the deal was.  They simply said they wouldn't authorize the charge to Henry's.  Raised to many questions in my mind, so I gave up pursuing the order.

However, I may snag that BH deal... http://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/833531-REG/Canon_EOS_5D_Mark_II.htm

$2,799 is hard to pass up.

Henrys is as pure as the driven snow.  If Chase wouldn't authorize then it was for some other reason.
Don't take my advice. Don't even take my advice not to take my advice.

Dunno what the 'other reason' could be... Chase clearly stated they do not authorize international charges with Henry's.

If it was a credit issue, I'm pretty sure they would have told me.  Why would they lie?

I never implied that anyone was lying. Your bank has its own reasons but it's not because of Henrys' business practices, people in this country worship that place.  Besides which, two other American posters in this thread successfully made the transaction you attempted and had rave reviews. The consipiracy theorist in me wonders if it has anything to do with Chase being the financier for Best Buy/Future Shop, but it couldn't be that, could it?  ;D

Sorry for offending you, Wellfed.  I certainly wasn't trying to bad mouth Henry's or Canada.  That's God's honest truth.  I was just letting it be known that I got a "not so fuzzy feeling" after speaking with Chase.

If other folks on our side of the border had good experiences with Henry's, than I'm sure some other business arrangements, as you suggested, may be playing a role.

Again, I apologize for offending you.  That was not my intent at all.

Yeah, I will reiterate that I used a BOFA credit card via Paypal and Henry's was absolutely smooth sailing from Toronto to Philadelphia,PA USA. $12.00 shipping and i received order in 24 HRS. I would argue Henry's is better than many USA big stores with regard to business practice and customer service.

Anyone care to venture if this pretty drastic cut in price is because of old St. Nick or because inventories are too high and vendors are preparing for an announcement?

Panting for a 5D3...

I also see that the 5D Mark II kit (105mm f/4L) is only $2799.00 at B and H today!!!! That is $700 less than I paid for mine...!!!!
WHAH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!  LOL! :o That is life in digital photography... I REALLY love this camera....My only complaint is I wish that I could get 7 to 9 brackets out of the menu for HDR(should be an update in firmware...easy fix ...no?)... ...other than that ....it is an incredible machine.

Oh, no offense at all... I was thinking that maybe I'd offended you. I don't have a dog in that fight- no affiliation to Henrys other than I occasionally buy stuff there. As for the country- we have our share of shady businesses and no-goodniks too, but we try to train the latter to be NHL enforcers.

Glad we're all good!  :)   

I'm still having a hard time not clicking "buy" on that damn BH page.  Don't know if it's inventory, or impending 5Dmkiii launch.  grrrr.   :(

I'd rather spend an extra $50+ at B&H and know that I'm not receiving something dodgy.

B&H happen to have also dropped prices nicely on the 5D2 and 5D2 kit.

Way better price in Broadway Camera in Vancouver (this is "brick and mortar" store). They have 5D mkII for 1999 CAD, about the same price in USD. This price is going for months now, you can check out http://www.bccamera.com/index.php?main_page=index&cPath=7_16&sort=20a&page=2

They are Canon pro-shop, I am usually buying stuff from them (I go to the store though), if you are suspicious :) you can fire up google maps, plug in their address and go down on the street level.
Important fact is, they sell for 200 less than amazon, for us from Vancouver, we can go in store and pay no shipping & handling and ... insert here which ever fees. I am pretty much sure if you are calling on days other than Sat. and Sun. there will be someone to pick up phone and answer your call.

I am not affiliated with this store and I am note payed to wright this, just hunting and sharing good deal. Hope you will share one too :)
